The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
Fair enough, but obsolete weapons haven't won many major battles since Isandlwana.
A good friend recently went on a hunt similar to one described in passing at the link...He took a ~500# feral hog with a knife.Not a primitive bow, a frigging KNIFE!I don't need an "adrenaline rush" badly enough to take on a pure-evil critter with 6" tusks with a frigging KNIFE! I've SEEN what a pig like than can do to human flesh -- and it ain't pretty!But... He apparently enjoyed himself, and wants to do it again next year...To each his own, I guess...All that said, I think the primitive/self-made bow and arrows-hunt is smart for a number of reasons - God forbid we'd ever need such skills, but if you DO need them, there's no substitute!
Anon, I have this to say about your friend who killed a 500lb hog with a knife (especially if he didn't tie it to a stick and make a spear):He'd probably do well against any home invader, as long as he could make it to a kitchen drawer. Winning a knife fight against a large wild animal is great practice for self defense. (losing a knife fight against a big hog, OTOH, doesn't do you much good at all)
